  Topic:

  Some people prefer to play team sports, while other people prefer to play individual sports such as walking, bicycling, swimming… (Some people prefer to do exercise alone while others would like group sports.) Discuss the advantages of each, and then indicate which you prefer and why.

  Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

  Essay:

  Regardless of whether an individual prefers to be a team player or a ‘lone wolf,’ playing sports is something to be applauded. Both playing team sports and playing individual sports have obvious advantages. Overall, young people are said to find team sports more enjoyable; however, the virtues of individual sports are certainly not to be discounted.

  The advantages of playing an individual sport are manifold. Individual sports can often be more appealing to people who are new to sports, thanks to the ease with which they can start doing exercise. Individuals can just go out and do it whenever they want, without having to wait for others. For example, if a person is a runner and wants to go running, that person can just pull on trainers and get going. Likewise, with the case of swimming, an individual can head to the pool without having to worry about getting a team together to play with. Generally speaking, individual sports can instill higher degrees of self-reliance, discipline, independence and passion in athletes. There are people who work better alone in competition because they know that success is entirely dependent on themselves and that there are no teammates to hold accountable if things do not go according to plan.

  With camaraderie and team spirit leading the group, there are endless advantages to playing team sports, as compared with individual sports. One of the biggest draws of team sports in competition is that the responsibility for success is equally shared out among all members of the team. Team sports can learn cooperation, so no matter the individual talents of the players, they must all work together in order to succeed. No doubt, playing as a team can promote good sportsmanship and help to put winning into perspective. Also, participating in a team sport can be a powerful and fun way to stay motivated, making every team member more supportive, patient and optimistic, both on and off the field. Besides, having teammates to train with can be inspiring, which may encourage them to rise to new levels and enhance a sense of belonging. Ultimately, team sports are a great way to make friends and meet new people.

  On balance, it seems that nowadays young people tend to take up team sports, if just for the fun of it. In comparing the advantages between team sports and individual sports, it is important that people may choose whichever physical activities that best work for them. After all, if people are getting out there and giving it a go, they are doing something positive and their bodies will thank them.
